Beer. An Excellent Source of Happiness.

LAST NAME Brewing is a craft brewery and taproom in Upland, Calif. We brew the kind of beer we like to drink. Beer that’s smooth, balanced and that pairs up well with food. Turns out other people like to drink it, too. Sometimes, they even like it enough to give it a gold medal (or two.) We’re not brewing beer to put trophies on our mantels, but it’s nice to be appreciated.

Mmmm. Beer.

From the first foamy sip to the last, our goal has always been to create beer that tastes great. Our base ingredients are deceptively simple: San Francisco Lager Yeast. Two-Row Malt. Yet the fullness and depth of flavor come from knowing how to make those ingredients (and a few select others) shine.


Her Majesty Pomona Queen, our California Amber Lager, offers a medium-bodied beer with notes of nuts and toffee, and just enough hops to balance the full malt flavor. We brew this jewel with San Francisco …


Our brewers call this a “beer flavored beer” – which is high praise in brewer-speak. Simple and simply delicious, our multi-award winning Cream Ale is a golden, light-bodied beer that elevates this classic American style …


We’re toasting our home state with our American Dark Lager. With a lighter body than many dark beers and subtle chocolate and coffee flavors, it appeals to the grizzly and teddy bear alike. You can …


The redheaded stepchild of a traditional red ale and an imperial red, this is our newest beer. Falconer’s Flight 7C and Summit hops bring down the best flavors from the Pacific Northwest, combined with smooth …


Until Runway IPA, we’d been focusing on perfecting our lagers. Luckily for you thirsty beer enthusiasts, our first flight into the world of ales is a delicious one. The base is a solid malt flavor; …


As warm summer days grow darker, this beer takes a cue from nature and darkens, too. Oktober Fiesta lager takes a traditional German style, adds in the experience of southwest brewers, and brings you a …


When the weather starts to require a coat and hat, Winter Haze makes the perfect third accessory. Our winter seasonal beer is a true Barleywine-Style Ale full of the warmth and hop character the season …


In the spirit of early spring, we have made this a “green” Irish Red. Not green in the same sense as FD&C Green No. 3 food coloring, but green as in using 100% Certified Organic …


This light, golden blond ale is a moderately strong ale with subtle fruity-spicy complexity, honey-like sweetness and finishes dry with a creamy texture.


This beer is rich and complex, with a wide range of flavors, such as coffee and chocolate. It has a bittersweet finish, with a roasted malt character, and gives you a warm finish.


This bright, tropical, slightly malty, intensely hoppy IPA, brewed with Amarillo and Simcoe hops, has notes of citrus and caramel malt sweetness.


This beer is a highly attenuated German Pilsner that is well-balanced and has the perfect touch of lemon and hop bitterness. The grain character is somewhat neutral and shows a light bready-crackery quality, with moderate corny …


The Tasting Room

Hang out with your friends inside at our 30-foot bar or in the beer garden with shady picnic tables perfect for grazing. We partnered up with The Big Easy Sandwich and now have a food trailer here Tuesdays-Sundays! – check our calendar for details. Or you’re always welcome to bring some of your own munchies for picnics and pairings. Throughout the year we’ll be doing fundraisers for local organizations and making certain that our friends and neighbors enjoy all the benefits of having a microbrewery in their own backyard.
We are open 7 days a week from 12-9pm!

Have you ever wondered about those people who are unapologetically different than everyone else, and still so incredibly likable? We like to think that about ourselves. We’re individuals who do things our way because we’re curious, because we’re honest and because we’re interested in doing what we love. We bottle up our beer, not who we are.

No one's ever accused us of being poets, and the chances of the next Great American Novel coming from our keyboards are pretty slim. Still, someone once told us "write what you know." What we know is good beer and good times at the taproom.
